Beckett update

I have to apologize for my tardiness in blogging the lineups. It’s been a busy morning, with an appearance by Mike Greenwell. Greenwell walked into the clubhouse and had to go by a security guard. The exchange:

Security guard: “Umm. Can I help you?”

MG, flatly: “I’m Mike Greenwell.”

A media relations staff ran over to rescue him and bring him into the interview room. We’ll have some interesting comments from him later.

Josh Beckett (lower back) reported that he was “Better today than I was yesterday. I got a good night’s sleep.” He certainly seemed in better spirits.
